Perfect Eggs In A Mug 5 "This is absolutely brilliant" david sargeant 18 March 2018 We purchased this in-store, thinking it looked really nice, didn't really believe it would work. Oh my goodness, how wrong were we. It makes perfect eggs. When doing a poached egg, for a large size, 60 seconds is perfect, soft, not too runny, just a little. An extra large egg, 60 seconds was really runny, I prefer 70 to 80 seconds. We weren't sure whether to use hot or cold water as is doesn't say, however it is cold water to the fill line. The poached egg comes out well with a spoon. I have finally found the solution to my rubbish egg making ability, especially poached. A note from the team Thank you for placing your review.
